Kicking off the Boat of Garten Talks 2016/17 season we have a special double bill revisiting Nepal – One year on following our fund raising event held last September.


Marian Burrows-Smith and Mungo Ross who spoke at last year’s event have both been back to Nepal during the year and will give us their first-hand accounts of how the Nepalese are recovering from the devastating earthquakes of 2015.

Mungo has been in the mountains leading groups in the Annapurna and the Khumbu regions while Marian has been visiting communities where she has been checking on progress with the various projects she supports to build girl’s toilets at schools. She also went to Deurali to meet villagers and pass across the money we raised to some elderly women and couples who are homeless due to the earthquakes.Both have amazing pictures and stories to tell – with a mix of hope and resilience along with political incompetence and cynicism!

This will be a fascinating night – with lots to see, hear and discuss!


Admission – still only £5 (free for under 16’s with an adult) season tickets available – 8 for the price of 6!

Beer, wine and soft drinks bar plus free admission to art exhibition
